Cacaxtla Reopens

The archaeological site of Cacaxtla in the Mexican state of Tlaxcala was forced to close last year after a hail storm severely damaged the main building housing its famous pre-Hispanic murals, which are some of the best preserved in Mexico. After extensive repairs and construction, the site is once again open to the public. The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) has posted an announcement about Cacaxtla's reopening on their website.

Cacaxtla Archaeological Site is open Tuesday to Sunday, from 8:00 to 17:30. The admission is $46 MXP or about US$4.50.
